Bowling Fashion and Accessories
If you spend a significant time at bowling alleys you will notice that there are some bowling fashion and accessories that are a must have for the serious bowler. Bowling shirts and custom balls are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to bowling fashion. Having the newest and fanciest extras can make you feel more confident and also more prepared. When we are more prepared we are more in the zone. It is like going swimming without a towel, you just don’t have the things that make you more comfortable. Also, if you are dressing for a bowling date, you need to make sure you are prepared.
Your own bowling shoes that fit great, look nice and offer a better slide can be very important to the serious bowler. Not to mention you can improve your stance and your swing because they have not been worn in on certain areas of the shoe that may throw off your game. Cleanliness and bacteria are just a few other reasons to invest in a good pair of nice looking bowling kicks.
A custom bowling ball or two is a basic necessity also for the serious bowler. You don’t want to be using house balls. Two balls are ideal for anybody with a good idea how to bowl. Custom balls come in several colors and even have monograms in some cases. This is also a good way to make sure that your ball is not stolen or used by another player. Having a monogrammed ball is the utmost in bowling fashion.
Bowling bags are a wonderful bowling accessory to have especially if you have an expensive pair of shoes and a custom ball. The bag can hold all of the things that you need and don’t want lifted from your lane while you are away from the lane or bowling. It is also handy for all of the small things that would get in your way if they were in your pocket like car keys and spare change as well.
Towels and resin bags are also very important and can fit easily into your bag with your shoes and ball. Resin bags help with your delivery and swing by cutting down on perspiration and slip. Towels are of the same nature and are used best when in combination with the resin bag. Towels can also be monogrammed and personalized for you specifically at the pro shop.
Some of the accessories and “flare” are tools to help you bowl, rather than for looks. Wrist guards are one example. Wrist guards can save a bowlers game by adding extra support during your release. Wrist guards come in several different colors, shapes, and sizes.
Most of the fashion in bowling will have a retro feel and be reminiscent of bowling’s hay day. Many of these items are coming back into style for street wear also. Bowling shoes and shirts are at the height of popularity lately. This can become a problem for the casual bowler who rents shoes and balls because of theft of the “good” shoes from the alley that you bowl at.
All in all most of the bowling shirts, shoes and balls will all be adorned in bright colors and loud print that glow in a blacklight. In fact, almost all alleys across the country have adapted a lunar or rock and roll style to promote fun atmosphere. Whatever you’re bowling style, don’t be caught without a neon or print on lunar bowling night. For men the bowling shirt with your name embossed on the front is a classic and usually worn as a symbol of good bowling skills and admiration for the history of the game.
